"Autumn Mist"

Antique Silver & Moss Agate Brooch

  • Sale
  • Regular price $585.00

Moss agate is not banded, and therefore not strictly an agate , although still referred to as such. It's a mineral of the quartz family. It is clear to milky white, with dendritic inclusions of manganese or iron that has grown into patterns similar to moss or lichen. The Ancients believed it to aid in agricultural success, burying it in the soil where crops were planted and using as an amulet when journeying across land.

Set in silver, this moss agate brooch has a beautiful, mysterious pattern from which many stories may unfold. A murky sky with the silhouette of a misty tree line and spots of deep burnt orange imitating the sunset, russet autumn leaves, or perhaps a forest fire! The possibilities are endless, as you make your own fairy tale from this wonderful piece.
